Canoeing was started some 30 years ago at Hilton College. We currently have about 20 Canoeists in Summer and Winter canoeing is reserved for the elite paddler representing KZN or SA at various disciplines. We participate in an Inter-Schools League in Terms 1, 3 and 4 which covers most of the Canoeing disciplines like Sprints, Flat Water Marathon, Slalom, Canoe Polo, Enduro, Surf-Ski and obviously River Paddling.

After one season some of the paddlers also compete in KZN Canoeing Union races, usually on Sundays and many paddle big races such as the Fish, Duzi, 50 Miler, Umkomazi and the Drakensberg Challenge. Boys can join our sport in January or after the Winter sport season. We train on Deeside dam on Tuesdays and Thursdays and compete in Schools races on Saturdays and KZN Canoeing Union races on Sundays. In winter, on a Saturday we head down to Durban to surfski and compete in the various surf ski series races. Our top paddlers can also compete in the weekly Duzi Dice on Thursdays at Camps Drift as well.
